Stubble Management: A guide for Mallee farmers

Printer-friendly version
Stubble retention is a key part of sustainable farming systems and can be used by Mallee farmers to improve the profitability and sustainability of their farms.
Reduced erosion and improved soil structure are just a couple of the many benefits of stubble retention. Other benefits such as moisture conservation, provision of nutrients, improved biological activity and providing a useful feed source for livestock have also been identified through both research and farmer observations on-farm.
This guide has been designed to assist farmers to accurately assess stubble cover levels over the critical December to June period. It provides information on stubble management practices to ensure adequate levels of stubble are maintained to minimise erosion and harness the many benefits of stubble retention.
